Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-Seven chapters focus on the survival techniques of several animals, ranging from the common honeybee to the yellowhead jawfish, briefly discussing their shelters, methods of gathering food, or mating rituals. Kaner piques readers' curiosity with catchy section headings and by asking questions. Each of the chapters includes at least one related activity requiring readily available materials. "All in knots," for example, illustrates how to tie three different knots used by the weaverbird when it builds a nest. A piece of rope is all that is needed. Large print, a pleasing layout, and complementary watercolor illustrations create a visually appealing book. A fun matching game and a challenging quiz are included. Kaner's book lacks the depth necessary for assignments, but will be enjoyed by young animal lovers.
